Safe Place for Animals (SPA) is a 501c3 nonprofit, no-kill, animal rescue shelter/pet adoption center, with a low-cost Veterinary Clinic and Grooming Salon.

SPA is dedicated to helping pets in our community in need. We take in, care for, provide veterinary services and medical care, spay/neuter and find loving, responsible homes for homeless, abandoned and unwanted pets. Our shelter is open 365 days a year! We rely on donations from compassionate and caring citizens in the community who want to help make a difference in the lives of animals in need. We do not receive any government financial assistance.

  • “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

    Margaret Mead
  • “You can do something big, or you can do something small. Because what ever you do... it’s better than nothing at all.”

    Rescue. Foster. Adopt. Spay/Neuter. Volunteer. Donate. Advocate. 
  • “Volunteers don’t necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”

    Elizabeth Andrew
  • “Saving one dog will not change the world. But surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.”

  • Don’t buy and don’t breed. Adopt a homeless pet in need!

  • Fostering isn’t a lifetime commitment. It’s a commitment to save a life.
